Protect against insect-borne illness
Mosquitoes, ticks and warm weather go hand in hand, which increases the risk of mosquito-borne illnesses such as West Nile and tick-borne illnesses such as Lyme disease. About one in five people who are infected with West Nile will develop a fever with other symptoms such as headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea or rash.

Surviving the holiday season
The holidays are only weeks away. Is it just me, or do you see holiday decorations, hear holiday music and see commercials about the holiday season sooner than the year before?

Health self-advocacy
Transitioning from active duty to civilian life can be a challenging and demanding process. This process can be additionally stressful with the existence of traumatic issues from military service or post-deployment health problems.

Resilience: Lesson from the ‘Little Engine’
One of my favorite books as a child was “The Little Engine that Could.” The book had a great message that the little engine chants as she makes her way up the hill, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.” The story inspired me as a child with its uplifting lesson on dealing with obstacles. It is a story about optimism, bravery, single-minded focus and a great example of resilience.

Taking the fear out of flying
Navy pilots are an exceptional group of individuals who obviously have no fear of getting into a metallic bird to soar. Being launched from a steampowered catapult off a ship or catching a wire on the comparatively tiny deck of a carrier while it’s in motion is not for the feint-hearted.

Coping with caregiver stress
I was listening to a friend who had just lost her father recount the challenges she had faced finding live-in help to be with him the past few months. Her mother was unable to care for him alone, but she became the biggest barrier to keeping help in the house. A wife whose spouse has multiple health problems shared with me her fears about the future and providing care for him as she ages. The stories are endless and heart wrenching.

Sleep for health and well-being
There’s an Irish proverb that goes something like this, “A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.” Personally, I think sleep is overrated. Of course, that is what I tell myself when I wake up feeling tired. I am not alone, though. Lately, I’ve been having conversations with coworkers, family and friends about their trouble getting to sleep, staying asleep and waking up during the night.

Caregiver Stress

Advances in science, better nutrition and improvements in health care have allowed people to live to unprecedented ages. But this blessing of longevity has brought with it challenges that have stretched the demand for services of both professional and family caregivers.

Often, holiday celebrations with family and friends may create high levels of stress in our lives. And while the holiday season can be a wonderful time, there is no denying the stress that can even creep up on the calmest and most resolute of individuals.
